Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) are used to store, transport and process bulks. These patented IBCs are great for flow issues such as bridging, blocking and blend segregation. They are ideal for customers with high number of recipes and need quick changeover.
Bucket elevators offer one of the most efficient methods to elevate bulk materials vertically. This consists of a series of buckets attached to a belt or chain with pulleys or sprockets, and enclosed with a housing or casing to contain the material.
Many bulk material ingredients are handled in bulk bags (or super sacs). Bulk Bag Unloaders help to safely remove all of the contents from the bag so it can then be further processed. Bulk Bag filling units help to safely package bulk materials into these 1 ton bags.
These automated washing systems are used in the pharma and food sectors where cleanability and hygiene is of utmost importance. And now in more and more facilities since the pandemic as well. They can clean bins/storage tanks, as well as product components to ensure cleanliness.
There has always been a need crushing big things into smaller pieces - stones, ore, ice, grain and more. Coarse crushers such as our impact crushers, cage mills, hammer mills and lump breakers are integral to this process and ultimately make it easier to further process your materials.
Dust collection is vital in every manufacturing operations’ overall safety. Dust collection systems have pick up points that collect dust that otherwise become airborne and into the factory atmosphere while handling. Sometimes the collected dust is valuable and can be of further use.
Some dry bulk solids like sugar and grain dust are highly explosive. Explosion vents help vent an explosion to safe destination (outdoors, away from workers), while explosion suppression equipment sends a chemical into the process to extinguish a fire ball, keeping the plant environment safe.
With regards to dry bulk process, fans and blowers are used to either push, suck or blow air and/or dry product through an enclosed system. They are frequently used in pneumatic/vacuum conveying systems.
Feeders are used to accurately meter a certain amount of product into a batch or continuous process at a fixed rate. This can be done volumetrically (each screw rotation displaces a fixed volume of product) or gravimetrically (through loss in weight).
These mills are used to take a coarse product and grind it down to a finer powder. These mills cater to applications where temperature control (because grinding creates heat), and end particle size are of utmost importance.
Titan series slide gates are used in gravity or pneumatic process applications to control the flow of heavy duty and abrasive material in nature such as clinker, cement, fly ash, sand, and gravel, . These heavy duty valves are designed to be serviced in line without having to remove the valve, minimizing downtime.
Quantum series slide gates are used in gravity or pneumatic process applications to control the flow of material such as granules, powders, and pellets. These valves are also maintenance friendly and can be serviced in line without having to remove the valve. Our seals help extend the life of the valve which gives us an advantage over the competition.
Most liquid equipment runs more efficiently without solids in the steam. Liquid screeners are used to ensure that solid contaminants can easily be removed from a liquid process, which eliminates the need for production stoppages.
Magnetic separation is required when trying to separate ferrous materials (with iron content) from a product stream. This is often seen in the construction & demolition, mining, and recyling sectors. This can help recover metal, as well as protect downstream equipment from costly damages.
With no mechanically moving parts, pneumatic conveying is often used in many dry material applications. This type of system is comprised of a blower, filter, receiver, piping and discharge points. Pneumatic conveying can achieve conveying to distances and configurations that other conveying equipment cannot.
Pneumatic conveying is key to a bulk material handling system. Our range of Clyde Process, Pneumatic Conveying systems – using Dense Phase – are proudly adopted globally and provide dependable, high efficiency performance, whilst being bespoke and engineered for the processing of bulk materials, in a variety of industries.
Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying is a method for handling bulk materials, using high pressure and low gas volumes, to efficiently push materials along the bottom of an enclosed pipeline.
Suitable for handling and moving a wide range of materials, including difficult, abrasive products and ranging from fine cohesive powders to wet lumpy coal, Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying pushes the material along the pipe in a plug form, at relatively low velocities. This means minimal wear on pipes and bends, allowing for minimum maintenance and long life performance.
Efficient use of compressed air also gives low power consumption and operating costs, whilst the enclosed pipeline ensures no material escapes and is therefore not wasted. Material is commonly transferred from a single collection point to either a single or multiple reception points.
Benefits of Dense Phase Pneumatic Conveying:
Minimal Wear for Long Life
Low Operating Costs
No Wasted Material

Our ProPhase Dense Phase Conveying systems are available for handling material temperatures up to 200°C and at rates of up to 250 tonnes / hour for distances up to 750 metres. When installed as a full system, it will include various components, including a range of valves, pumps and pressure vessels depending upon the material and distances to be conveyed.
Supporting the ProPhase range is the NEW, compact PHASiQ Control Panel. This intelligent Conveyor Control provides pre-engineered, sequence control, visualisation and data capture.
Applications for Pneumatic Conveying:
Batteries, electronics & electrodes
Cement & gypsum
Coal & biomass fired power plants and electric utilities
Rotary valves are used to control flow of a material in a process, as well as to lock out air from being circulated to parts of a system. This eliminates dusting and keeps maintenance and shutdown costs down.
These samplers automatically inject a tube in a process stream to collect a sample which gets reviewed by a companies Quality Assurance group. This is the cleanest way of extracting samples from a product stream.
Commonly used in many material transfer systems, screw conveyors offer a proven and economical way to move dry product from one place to another. We offer flexible units which have the ability to bend, as well as shafted and shaftless rigid conveyors that are engineered to order.
